Great players cost a lot of money but help win games. High-priced players - a byproduct of poorly run front offices with bad scouting departments - only cost a lot of money.

I've always loved Warrick, loved the signing over the summer and I think he has another 3-4 years in him if he wants it.

I hope he does. He gives us a versatility by being an every down threat that we need.

Yuc, I had the good fortune to be a Freshman at FSU when WD was a freshman as well (we actually graduated the same day).  It's been awesome to be able to see him both as a Seminole and a Buc.  I was PO'ed when he went to Atl, but understood that he had to go where the $$$ was.

Still, for me, his greatest individual/most exciting play he's ever made was his freshman year vs. Florida at Ben Hill Griffin Stadium.  Charlie Ward passes the ball on a deafening 3rd and 12, and Dunn takes it to the house.  Absolutely incredible.

If he goes strong for another 3-4 years, hes def hall of fame material. No doubt about it.

I busted his balls before he came here.  I humbly eat yet another serving of crow.

He has shown he still has some utility to him, and in a rotation, he has a lot of shift left.

Forgive me.

Dunn looks practically the same he did the day we drafted him, maby a just tiny bit slower, he has been HUGE for the offense, I wish they would line him up in the slot a few times and create a mismatch with a linebacker covering him, he made that linebacker (I think it was Barnett) look like his b!tch with the stiff arm sunday

He's not only a great running back but a great human being. A professional athlete who quietly goes about doing his job. Any rookie would do well to learn from Dunn.

Dunn has made three Pro Bowls. He can't be the "most overlooked and underrated running back in the last century" when Fred Taylor is younger, has more yards, and only made his first Pro Bowl last year as an injury replacement.

FRG is the most logical poster on this board.  You guys just don\'t like where the logical conclusions take you.

Same. I don't usually wear player jerseys but I had a white #28 one back in the day.
